Worm and Worm Gears units transfer motion between nonintersecting right angle shafts. They will be the most compact small precision gears system available, plus the quietest and smoothest running. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a high reduction ratio in a very small space.

EP has been manufacturing worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears models in a range of inch and metric sizes and with many pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision surface stainless worm and tires and phosphor bronze worm gears supply the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working existence.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a equipment screw, but with the teeth designed to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may have one or multiple threads (referred to as starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the connected worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple begins will approach the mating worm equipment a corresponding amount of the teeth with each revolution. (electronic.g., a 2-commence worm will move the worm wheel two the teeth per revolution.)

Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature direct, helical-cut teeth and provide only one point of connection with the worm. EP presents “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut the teeth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels give a much greater get in touch with area, which vastly enhances load capability and longevity.
